Our New Summer Home

Yes, we found a perfect summer home in Bandon.

Kathy had been thinking that she wanted a house before we went to Benson this past winter. After seeing the lovely new houses our Montana Owner friends had recently bought in Arizona, she felt  even stronger she wanted a house.

We had planned to return to Bandon this summer, but came back early this year because I had seen a couple of houses on MLS listing while we where still in Benson. Neither of them were what we wanted.

So, we left it at "if we find the right place" we would buy it. If not we would go back to Benson this fall and look again next year.

We think we have found the perfect summer house for us. It is a 4 block walk to the Dog Park and another 4 blocks to the Beach at Coquille Point. Bandon Beach was rated by CNN as the 85th Best Beach in WORLD!!  CNN Travel 100 Best Beaches

As you can imagine it is daunting to think about starting with nothing and trying to furnish a whole house. This house has been a summer home for the pervious owners, so we bought it completely furnished right down to the pots, pans and dishes, even including the patio furniture. I am sure that in time we will replace some of the pieces, but at least on day one we will have a place to sit, eat and sleep.

Needless to say we are very excited.

We are not done RVing and we still have our Montana 5th Wheel. We plan to stay in Bandon until the rain starts and then head south for the winter.
